When it comes to high-performance cars, you can’t go wrong with a BMW. They have the performance to match even the fastest of supercars, and have the comfort of a luxury cruiser when you just want to slow down and relax a little. We have a wide selection of track day experiences that let you get behind the wheel of some of the most popular cars from the German automotive firm.
Aggressive and powerful, the BMW M3 drives like it’s fuelled by testosterone with unbelievable acceleration and handling capabilities. We have a selection of M3s available at a variety of locations across the country, including the E46, E90 and even a track prepared E36 EVO available for our special Arrive and Drive track day packages.
This performance car dream is fitted with a full roll cage and is powered by a 3.2 litre straight six capable of 0 to 60mph in just 5.0 seconds thanks to its 320bhp. The E90 M3 we have on offer is certainly a surprising beast for a saloon car. Unusually for an M3, the E90 is powered by a 4.0-litre V8 engine producing 420bhp and is capable of 0 to 60mph in just 4.7 seconds.
If you’re looking for the latest in sports car technology take a look at the BMW i8. This hybrid engine sports car offers futuristic looks and performance to match. Powered by a tiny 1.5 litre 3-cylinder turbocharged engine along with a pair of electric motors, this hybrid engine combination gives the i8 an impressive 356bhp and a 0-60mph time of just 4.4 seconds.
Wherever you’re based in the country, a BMW driving day is closer to you than you think. Our range of locations we have available includes Bovingdon Airfield in Hertfordshire and Carver Barracks in Essex in the South. Meanwhile up North, petrolheads can book to drive the latest high-performance car from the German giant at Three Sisters Circuit in Wigan or Elvington in Yorkshire.
Finding it couldn’t be easier either - at the top of this page, to the left of your screen you will find our Location and Regions tools. Simply type your postcode into the former to see all available matching experiences within a given radius, or use the latter to filter experiences by which part of the UK you’re in.
You will find all of our amazing packages listed above which make great gifts for any BMW fan, no matter what the special occasion may be; Christmas, birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day. The list goes on. You can order an open gift voucher or book directly onto a date.
If you are buying an open gift voucher for a BMW driving day package, please check carefully, as some BMW vouchers and special offers may have a shorter or longer validity period to be used and activated within, which will be clearly stated on the voucher.
If you are booking directly onto a date for a BMW Experience, please note that you are making a booking request and the date and time that you choose will still be subject to availability.
We usually confirm bookings within 48 hours but it’s important that you do not make any arrangements in conjunction with your booking request until you have received a final confirmation email. The immediate receipt you get when making a booking request is not the confirmation.
Other important things to consider when purchasing BMW Experiences is that the driver meets all of the requirements in terms of age, weight, height and driving licence. Each experience will have its own unique requirements so make sure you have read through the important information thoroughly.
If an experience is for junior drivers only, we will usually mention this in the name of the package but not in all cases. If you place a booking for a BMW Experience and on the day the driver turns out to not meet the requirements, then it is likely they will not get to drive and may have to settle for a passenger ride instead.
So what BMW is the best to drive? In our opinion, the best BMW to drive is the BMW i8. This supercar went into production in 2014 as part of BMW's 'Project i' electronic fleet. The i8 concept was initially unveiled at the 2009 International Motor Show in Germany before the production version was unveiled in 2013, and before going into production in 2014. The i8 uses a 6-speed paddle-shift transmission and packs a 1.5L turbocharged I3 gasoline engine, along with a 98 KW electric motor.
Drivers that respond well to their instructor's guidance can expect to reach speeds of up to 120mph in this car at certain venues. Some venues are limited in regards to the top speed achievable due to the length of the track but you can still enjoy the incredible acceleration, braking, and cornering on the shorter tracks.

Descriptions of Events
At the time of publication, TrackDays.co.uk and any other materials are up to date. You may notice changing content, format, or prices throughout the offseason (Oct - Feb). Because of the amount of bookings, we will not be able to immediately advise our customers of any changes. Please check our website or contact our customer service representatives for the most up-to-date information.
TrackDays showcases products, events, and track days from a variety of vendors and locations. We work directly with the best experience providers in the UK, and they sometimes need to alter their venue and car lineup, so the specifications supplied on the website may differ. They will always strive to provide an experience that is as near to what is described.
Locations and Vehicles
Trackdays.co.uk has a variety of facilities, automobiles, and locations to choose from. If a service is unavailable due to a failure, weather, or construction operations, a replacement will be provided. It's important to remember that a change of location, day, vehicle, and schedule may be necessary at times. For roughly £20-£25 per driver, a damage waiver may be obtained. These waivers are usually completely voluntary and can be accepted on the day of the event.
Sessions & Durations
For all event and session durations, an anticipated duration is specified. If an event must be rescheduled, you will be notified as soon as possible. Your ticket is nonrefundable after your itinerary has been verified.
Most driving experiences have certain rules in place to safeguard the health and safety of employees and drivers. Usually you must be between the heights of 4'11" and 6'6" and weigh less than 18 stone. You must be at least 16 years old to ride as a passenger. Please double-check to prevent any mistakes, since it varies based on the vehicle and kind of experience. Any driver participating in a driving activity or a vehicle track day must have their driver's licence with them at all times. A completely unrestricted motorcycle licence is required for all bike track days. You must have the appropriate licence in order to participate. During a car track day, all cars are subjected to a static and/or drive-by noise test. Wherever feasible, we display the static noise limits on our timetables. A vehicle that fails the drive-by or static noise testing on the day of the test will be unable to participate on the circuit and will not get a refund. For public track days, helmets are mandatory. You must wear two-piece zip-together or complete leather protection to compete in a race. Before you ride, you will be informed of any additional rules and restrictions. You will not be entitled for a refund if you are asked to leave the track due to misbehaviour.
The weather may have an impact on your event. Regrettably, rescheduling before an event is not always feasible. Track days and driving experiences are often cancelled and rescheduled in severe weather. Only if it is feasible will a refund be granted.
We keep our event calendar as up to date as possible on our website. If you can't find the event or date you're searching for, please use the contact form. We will do all we can to help you. It's best to book your chosen event, venue, and date as early as possible during peak periods like weekends and summer months. Your reservation will be forfeited if you do not follow the terms and conditions set out by the event host. You cannot change a reservation after it has been made.
The day and time of your event should be included in your booking confirmation (this does not include the automatic purchase email you receive that confirms what you have just ordered). After completing the purchase, you should get a final confirmation within 48 hours. In the event that any vehicles or equipment are unavailable due to mechanical breakdown, the locations will provide a suitable substitute on the day.
Conditions of the Voucher
Gift Voucher holders may use the purchase amount of a still-valid Gift Voucher as part or full payment for any item on the site. Vouchers are only valid for one person unless otherwise stated. A top-up payment may be paid if necessary to increase the value of a voucher so that it may be used to book a more costly event. Please bear in mind that the cost of an activity may vary depending on the season. If the event's cost is less than the value of the voucher, the remaining credit will be kept until the voucher's expiry date. Because your experience must be completed by the expiry date specified on the front of your Voucher, we recommend making your appointment as soon as possible. All coupons are valid for use until the expiry date indicated on the voucher, after which they will automatically expire and cannot be renewed.
Additional Terms and Conditions
Our gift packages are sent by Royal Mail 48 ®, which takes 3 to 5 working days, or by DPD for Next Working Day Delivery, which takes 3 to 5 working days. Go to the website's news section at the bottom of the page to view the final Christmas delivery dates.
If you get a new personalised loyalty discount code, it is only valid for the individual whose name appears on the voucher card and cannot be used to book anybody else for an event. This includes both extra drivers and passengers. The offer may be used to book any UK track day on our website, subject to availability. This voucher is non-refundable under any circumstances after the first track day appointment is scheduled.
Damage waivers paid on the day may incur an additional fee from certain suppliers. We make it clear to our customers that they are not forced to buy anything in order to participate in the event. All of this will be covered in the safety briefing.
All Trackdays.co.uk pricing includes VAT unless otherwise stated. We have the right to change the price of any product at any time. If we are unable to fulfil a booking owing to a price mistake on the website, we have the right to refuse it. If you buy an experience day or own vehicle track day over the phone with a staff member, we assume you have read and accepted our terms and conditions.
Calls to the Trackdays.co.uk booking line are recorded for staff training purposes; however, if sensitive information is supplied over the phone, call recording is turned off. Despite the fact that all of our providers are well-known and have been carefully chosen, the inclusion of an experience range does not mean that we guarantee any of our suppliers' safety standards or great performance.
Our suppliers' Public Liability Insurance will cover all participants at Trackdays.co.uk events. Other insurance options, such as 'Own Vehicle and Personal Accident Cover,' may be accessed by going to the Insurance section.
We generally do not accept open wheel cars on ordinary public track days.
